Online Services

Add convenience and flexibility to your life.

Online banking (which includes Bill Pay) and remote deposit capture (take a photo of a check with your smartphone) let YOU decide when, how and where you want to manage your money. Unlike a branch or Call Center, online banking is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Whenever and wherever you're ready - we're always ready. And it’s easy. And it’s absolutely free!

Make a deposit anytime, from anywhere!

Mobile Check Deposit, the VERY convenient feature of Community First's mBranch ("m" as in mobile), lets you make a deposit to any of your accounts at anytime and from anywhere. You just logon to the CFCU mobile bank, take a photo of the check's front and, after signing, the check's back. Done.

Sign, snap, submit. Stick a fork in it, because you're done!

eStatements. Going electronic saves you time and money. Trees thank you, too.

Not only do you get your account information quicker, it's more handy and secure. We archive all your statements on our server, and back-up server, for two years. And your statements are always available to you!

But you're also doing a good thing for yourself, your credit union (that's you, too –– as every Member is an owner of this financial cooperative), and the local environs. You also avoid a $2 fee for mailed statements (waived if 62 years of age or older).

eStatements, in their own small way, help us to preserve the special environmental qualities of this place we call home.

Archive checks

Archive and revive the info you need.

One of the great features of online banking at Community First is the checks you write are archived on our secure servers for up to two years. Need to look up a specific check the night before your tax returns are due? It's there, at-the-ready for you to look at, or even print a copy.

No more shoe boxes of cancelled checks with which to play "scavenger hunt." All your checks are there, in order, all accounted for, safe and secure, whenever you need them.
